A warning to Marlon county
farmers to be. careful in plaster
ing their farm equipment and
rock with chattel mortgages was
pourded yesterday by County
Commissioner Melson as result of
the conference with a Reconstruc
tion Finance corporation repre
sentative at the chamber of com
merce. "The farmers who gathered
here yesterday evidently believed
they were to meet with the same
kind of seed loan proposition
made possible through the federal
department of agriculture and the
R. F. C. last year, but soon found
the propositions made yesterday
were hard business, with Interest
ja.inients of t1 per cent and
(hattel mortgages involved," Mr.
Melson said later In the day.
As result of the misconception,
th Salem chamber of commerce,
at.Melson's suggestion, yesterday

Washington, D. C. to know when
aeed loans would be available this

THE movies have their panther

B. F. Nichols, who sought and
secured larger bounties for cou
gars and wolves. Yesterday he
painted a dolorous picture of
Douglas county and its school
children, many of whom, he says,
attend school wearing floursack
underwear. Perhaps trom now on
they will be garbed In congar
pelts. In all events, this writer
thought It in keeping when ha
read in the Roseburg Chieftain
that Commissioner Nichols was
setting about to reduce county
costs by providing a complete fu
neral for Indigents for $15 Instead
of 40, the prevailing price. In
vestigation revealed that the Doug
last commissioner is B. S., not
B. F. Nichols, the latter being the
"wolf man." Similarity of initials
Is said to have been a great aid
to the commissioner in his cam
paign. Barnett H. Goldstein
browsing around, the session
Wednesday, having come down
from bis Portland law office to
see what was going on. Gold
stein Is the attorney who repre
sented Corporation Commis
sioner Mott in the latter'- vig
orous prosecutions of a nnmber
of Bine Sky law violations.
Goldstein worked hard and se
cured many convictions, despite
clever defense tactics, but he
submitted good-sized bills for
fees, which aroused consider
able press comment. Now a bill
is in the house to make the attorney-general
or his deputies
do all state work, obviously a
thrust at Goldstein and others.
Bert Haney Is another Port-
lander looking on from time to
time. Haney is another of the
democratic forgotten men, party
leaders who like Ed Bailey said
"were armed with forks when it
was raining soup." Haney dearly
wanted to run for the United
Stataes senate last year but the
race meant giving up the attor
neyship for Meier & Frank and
that is a better sure job than the
uncertain task of defeating Fred
erick Steiwer. Caution prevailed:
Haney follows in the legal pott of
the late George Joseph, Steiwer
sits for six more years In Wash
ington, but who can doubt that in
the breast of Haney slumbers the
unquenchable tire which led him
to political battle in 1926 and
which in the more auspicious days
of '32 might have carried him
back to Washington where once
he made the headlines as he
fought it out with "Canny Cal.'
Mrs. Hannah Martin made
her maiden legislative speech,
seeking a S50 monthly mini
mum salary for school teachers
instead of the two-year mora
torium on the 975 limit, the
report favored by the majority
of the committee on education.
Her cause lost although she ral
lied more than 20 votes for the
minority and demonstrated that
Marion county's '31 Mrs. Smith
has been followed by another
woman of fluent tongue. Mrs.
Martin has not given up her
fight: She is reported to be
seeking further amendment to
the majority report when the
bill comes up for final vote
Granting courtesy of the floor
to home-towners wins many a
vote for a representative or sena
tor. The merchant, lawyer, farm
er or school teacher from the up
state dearly loves to sit with the
lawmakers, have their names ac
knowledged by the presiding of
ficer and formal courtesies thus
extended them. This method of
political donation Is cheaper than
cigars, cleanlier than kissing ba
bies, almost as effective as pat
ronage. Familiarity with names, gain
ed from long newspaper experi
ence, so facilitates Elbert Bede'e
calling of the house roll that by
the time the session is 10 days
under way he can drone oat the
CO-name roll call blank without
reference to the printed blanks.
This speeds np the call, so mnch
so that Bede frequently reads
the roll faster than the mem
bers respond. Another quirk of
the house reading clerk is te
call only the first few and last
two names on the list when a
pell of the house is required.
The senate roll call is polled a
bit mere formally, the leading
